Produktinformationen "BATTLESWORD - Towards The Unknown CD"
Melodic Old School Death Metal strikes back !

Mit „Towards The Unknown“ meldet sich im dreiundzwanzigsten Jahr ihres Bestehens die deutsche Melodic Death Metal Institution Battlesword mit neuem Material zurück und beweist, dass sie noch längst nicht zum alten Eisen gehören und schon gar nicht gewillt ist an den Ruhestand zu denken. Im Gegenteil - auf dem neuen Material bricht sich die geballte Ladung an Erfahrung in Form einer energiegeladenen Dampfwalze Bahn, die alles unter sich zu begraben droht was sich in ihren Weg stellt. 

Mit ihrem markanten Mix aus Melodic Death und skandinavischem Old School schafft es die Band auch anno 2022 scheinbar mühelos Songs zu schreiben, die vom ersten Riff an Klassikerpotential haben. 

„Towards The Unknown“ wurde im April/Mai im Big Easy Studio in Hennef von Michael “Freio” Haas aufgenommen und produziert. Für das Mastering hat sich die Band diesmal an einen Meister des Genres gewandt und so hat niemand geringeres als Dan Swanö das Album veredelt. Zusätzlich zu neuem Material enthält „Towards The Unknown“ als Bonus die Songs der bereits seit vielen Jahren restlos vergriffenen  „The 13th Black Crusade“ Maxi, die zu diesem Zweck auch nochmal einem ReMastering unterzogen wurden!

Final Cry - The Ever-Rest CD
Epic Melodic Thrash/Death Metal Highlight! Seit über 30 Jahren sind FINAL CRY ein konstanter Bestandteil der deutschen Metal Szene und legen mit dem Bergsteiger Epos “The Ever-Rest” ihren nunmehr sechsten Longplayer vor. Darauf gelingt es der Band einmal mehr sich neu zu erfinden, ohne dabei ihre Wurzeln aus den Augen zu verlieren.  Ihr nach wie vor im Thrash Metal verwurzelter Sound besticht durch gnadenloses Riffing, treibende Drums und viel Gespür für Melodien und Atmosphäre und schlägt dabei eine Brücke zwischen dem klassischen Thrash der 80er und den düsteren skandinavischen Stilen der 90er. Der neue Mann am Mikro  gibt dem Sound der Band nicht nur eine neue Note, sondern seine garstigen Screams und Growls passen auch zum tödlich-frostigen Szenario des Albums wie die Faust aufs Auge. Das Gesamtkonzept wird durch ein 20seitigen Storybooklet abgerundet, welches die realen Geschichten erzählt, die jedem einzelnen Song zu Grunde liegen. Für einige Backing Vocals und Chöre, welche die epische Tiefe des Albumthemas unterstützen, konnte man zudem Herbie Langhans (AVANTASIA) und Børd Wäsche (EYE SEE BLACK) gewinnen. “The Ever-Rest” wurde im Soundlodge Studio unter den Fittichen von Jörg Uken aufgenommen und ist zweifellos ein Highlight im Schaffen des Quintetts und dürfte sowohl alte als auch neue Fans der Niedersachsen begeistern. Für ihre langjährigen Anhänger hat die Band als Bonus mit “Words Unspoken” zudem einen ihrer Alltime Klassiker  aus dem Jahre 1994 nochmal neu aufgenommen und ins neue Jahrtausend portiert.

Dark Tranquillity - Construct CD
Innovative, atmospheric change ... With their tenth studio album "Construct", the then spearhead of Swedish melodic death metal Dark Tranqullity are heaviely struggled. The band suffered from writer's block in the run-up and also disagreed for a long time about how the new album should sound at all. In the end, a quite extraordinary album was created directly in the studio, on which above all many small details, different moods and a sound-based atmosphere were in the foreground. Many die-hard fans, expecting a melodic death metal milestone, were alienated by the more experimental tones of the album and so it quickly fell out of focus among purists. In retrospect it has to be said: unjustified, because it has an emotional depth that perfectly reflects the mood in which the band found themselves in the run-up to the creation process. So "Construct" is ultimately 100% a Dark Tranquillity album that is worthy of being put in perspective and duly considered again in 2022.

Dark Tranquillity - Yesterworlds - CD
Innovative Melodic Death Metal art made in Sweden... We go on a journey through time to the primordial soup of Swedish melodic death metal. If Gothenburg is the destination, there is no way around Dark Tranquillity. Together with In Flames, the guys spearheaded a whole movement that sparked a revolution in the following years. Both bands changed vocalists at the beginning of their career among themselves and then conquered the metal and music charts of the world. The first demo recordings presented here, however, do not yet show where the journey will lead. The songs are raw, wild and full of the urge to discover. The songs of the first demos, collected here on "Yesterworlds", represent the short time window in which the band created their very own style. This collection of demos contains additional liner notes by guitarist Niklas Sundin, as well as the artwork for A Moonclad Reflection 7", for which he was also responsible at the time. Ladies and Gentlemen... "We are the outstretched fingers, that seize and hold the wind" ...with this lyric excerpt from "Punish My Heaven" we release you on a musical journey into the past. Track Infos: Track 1-4: „Trail Of Life Decayed“ Demo Track 5-6: „A Moonclad Reflection“ 7“ Track 7-9: Previous unreleased Promo-Tape 1994 Track 10: Original released on the legendary W.A.R.

Dragonbreed - Necrohedron CD
A step back in history and two steps forwards... What lasts a long time becomes one! The history of the melodic death metal flagships Graveworm and Suidakra has always been closely connected. They started out on the same label, toured together and developed deep friendships that have lasted until today. It happened that during the songwriting for the current Suidakra longplayer "Wolfbite" several songs came up that didn't really fit to Suidakra, but with their raw sound, groove and melodies they brought back memories of the old times at the beginning of the nineties and demanded to be released. So Akki and Zachi (the former Suidakra bassist) knocked on the door of some old companions to complete the time travel experiment and were joined by Graveworm singer Stefano Fiori. They were completed by current Suidakra members Sebastian and Ken to unleash this debut album on mankind. So it's no surprise that "Necrohedron" sounds exactly like this: raw, inspired by the spirit of their early years together, paired with the skills and finesse of today! Cover artist Kris Verwimp (Suidakra, Marduk, Immortal, Arch Enemy, among others) was also immediately on fire and is responsible for the cover artwork as well as the lyrics. Fot this he used a concept story that had been lying dormant in his drawer for a long time and fitted Dragonbreed like a glove. The band has the claim not only to be a one-off "project", but also to aspire to the stages of this world with their well thought-out concept. TRACKLIST 01. The Undying 02. Summoning The Arcane 03. The World Beyond 04. Sinister Omen 05. Dawn Of Calamity 06. Offerings From Yonder 07. Curse Of The Forlorn 08. A Reconstruction Of Aeons Obscure

Fearancy - Daemonium CD
Don't fear the Austrians! Fearancy was founded in Styria in 2014 and mixed elements of thrash, melodic death, groove and industrial metal on their debut album "Paranoia", which was released in 2016. In the following years, the guys gained a good reputation as a live band with several shows at home and abroad, before they started working on the follow-up album. The result of this work is now available in the form of "Dæmonium", which is much heavier than the quartet's early days. Even if the origins in the thrashmetal like thunderstorm riffing or the groovy mosh parts can still be heard, the songs on "Dæmonium" can also be unhesitatingly united under the term modern melodic death metal. Friends of bone-dry neckbreakers will definitely get their money's worth and especially live, the new songs should ensure a lot of movement in the pit. The 10 songs were recorded at the Romes studio in Hartberg, Austria, while the mix and mastering was done by none other than J-F Dagenais (KATAKLYSM), who put the finishing touches on the whole thing at JFD Studios in Texas. Diego Gedoz de Souza (Hatebreed, Cypress Hill, Heathen, among others) is responsible for the artwork. TRACKLIST 1. Last Disease 2. Rise And Fall 3. Dæmonium 4. All Is Lost 5. Sacrifice 6. Voices 7.

Gates Of Ishtar - At Dusk And Forever - CD
When talking about Swedish melodic death metal of the nineties, names like Dark Tranquillity, At The Gates and In Flames quickly come up. With GATES OF ISHTAR, a band is slightly forgotten that musically had no less impact on the genre and is one of the influences of numerous bands that saw the light of day after them. After the 1996 debut "A Bloodred Path", two absolute milestones of the genre were released with "The Dawn of Flames" and "At Dusk and Forever", which unfortunately remained the last releases of the Swedes. The first edition was lost at the end of the nineties due to the bankruptcy of the then label Invasion Records. In 2017, a remastered reissue was released, which is now either out of print or traded at high lover and/or import prices. So it's time for a re-release of these two rough diamonds at a time when melodic death metal of the nineties is once again enjoying increasing popularity!

Gates Of Ishtar - The Dawn Of Flames - CD
Secret heroes of melodic death metal … Wenn man über schwedischen Melodic Death Metal der Neunziger spricht, fallen schnell Namen wie Dark Tranquillity, At The Gates und In Flames. Mit GATES OF ISHTAR wird dabei schnell eine Band vergessen, die musikalisch nicht weniger Einfluß auf das Genre hatte und zu den Einflüssen zahlreicher Bands gehört, die nach ihnen das Licht der Welt erblickten. Nach dem 1996er Debut „A Bloodred Path“ erschienen mit „The Dawn of Flames“ und „At Dusk and Forever“ zwei absolute Meilensteine des Genres, welche leider auch die letzten Veröffentlichung der Schweden blieben. Die Erstauflage ging Ende der Neunziger durch den Konkurs des damaligen Labels Invasion Records unter im Jahr 2017 erschien eine remasterte Neuauflage, die jedoch mittlerweile erneut entweder vergriffen ist, oder zu hohen Liebhaber und/oder Importpreisen gehandelt wird. Zeit also für ein ReRelease dieser zwei Rohdiamanten zu einer Zeit in der sich der Melodische Death Metal der Neunziger erneut einer steigenden Beleibtheit erfreut! 1.

IN SANITY - Welcome To The Show CD
Welcome To Insanity! At In Sanity, which was founded in 2011, sanity and insanity are not only close together, they are virtually on the same line. Once founded with the goal of continuing up a bit of the good old Melodic Death Metal times of the late nineties, the band has since then taken a path that has now reached a new dimension in 2019. Multivoice guitars, covered with steel and styled with a sophisticated songwriting, after two albums released on their own - the band now delivers their masterpiece "Welcome To The Show" . The sextet does not only set acoustic accents, but also tells a story visually, which is not only found on photos and in the artwork, but is also told in their extravagant live shows, which thus amount to an insane Extreme Melodic Metal performance. "Welcome To The Show" was recorded and produced in the Greenman Studios by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann (Orden Ogan, Rhapsody, Alamanac), which not only promises a superb sound, but also cements the demands of the band, which seems to know only one way: always forward and directly "in your face". With this in mind: Let the games begin!

STRYDEGOR - Isolacracy Digipak CD
Metallic north wind! For 10 years now Strydegor have been providing a steady musical north wind in the metal scene. They mix gusts of melodic death metal with hymnic-acoustic swirls, peppered with accentuated pinches of biting black metal. After the three albums and numerous gigs on European stages so far, the northmans are now preparing to unleash another storm of sound with "Isolacracy" as a testimony to their musical development. Like an Orcan that gets under your skin more incisive and lasting than anything the band has ever made before. The waiting time for the new album was definitely worth it, because "Isolacracy" undoubtedly represents the high point of the quartet's musical work so far and should be a candidate for the title "Melodic Death Metal Album of the Year". The Classical Melodic Metal trademarks, multi-layered vocals, a great feeling for melodies and atmosphere, as well as the mature songwriting are definitely a demand for admission into higher spheres of Metal Olymp! The present 11 songs were recorded between february 2018 and august 2020 in the Hell-Sounds Studio in Neu Brenz, refined by Oliver Carell/Blastbeat Productions (Ophis, Fäulnis, Heretoir, among others) and finally mastered by Lasse Lammert in the LSD Studio Lübeck (Alestorm, Gloryhammer) to a stunning neckbreaker. The cover artwork, which was created by Patrick Wittstock from Azrael Design, completes the harmonious overall picture of the almost 50 minute longplayer. TRACKLIST 1. Beware the Beast Man 2.

SuidAkrA - Cimbric Yarns Digipak CD
After 24 years of band history and 12 studio albums SUIDAKRA has become a flagship in the Celtic-Metalscene. During this time they toured around the globe, played any number of shows, mastermind Arkadius Antonik even spent a week on behalf of the German Goethe Institute to support regional musical projects in India and SUIDAKRA has been the first metal band ever that performed six shows there. Now, on 16th November 2018 they will release their thirteenth album, "Cimbric Yarns", that adopts a much calmer tone. Instead of their characteristic bombastic melodic death metal, the musicians impress with an acoustic, ambient masterpiece that takes the audience into a mystical land far before time. Based on a fantasy world which was created during the artwork/soundtrack collaboration between the painter Kris Verwimp and Antonik on "Realms Of Odoric", the belgian artist explains: "Continuing the “Realms of Odoric” saga, “Cimbric Yarns” harks back to where it all began. Thousands of years before Odoric’s time, there existed an advanced civilisation that perished in a great cosmic cataclysm. “Cimbric Yarns” is an attempt at recreating its mythology, inspired by ancient Celtic texts and megalithic sites from all over the world. It weaves a fine thread between history and fantasy, chronicling the fate of its main characters Cruàc, Arma and Aenea in 10 compelling acoustic songs.” Needless to say the overall visual concept and the epic artwork of the album was also done by Verwimp. Among others Mathias Zimmer (Perzonal War) – vocals, Sascha Aßbach (Fall Of Carthage) - vocals, Tina Stabel - vocals, Shir-Ran Yinon (New Model Army) -viola, violin and Catalina Popa – flute appears as guest musicians.

After countless tours around the globe, the band was the first metal band ever to perform on their third India tour in 6 different Indian cities in 2014. On the occasion of their 25th anniversary, the band moved to the Gernhart Studio in summer 2019 to record a proper anniversary work with their best classics under the wing of Martin Buchwalter. All recorded Songs were chosen by fans within a Kickstarter project before. As a bonus, former member Marcel Schoenen could be engaged to do his vocal lines, so the classic SuidAkrA-feeling of those old songs sound in a fresh and polished way.

SUIDAKRA - Lupine Essence Remaster CD
The legendary Debut - rereleased and remastered! 23 years have passed since the release of the debut album "Lupine Essence", which was to be the starting point of a career as adventurous as it was unique. As schoolboys, the guys delivered newspapers to be able to realise the project. What at that time was an enormous effort, both humanly and financially, was to give birth for the first time a German band which mixing folk with black metal. With 2000 units, the album sold out quickly and was only re-released once with the first edition of the digipak of "Auld Lang Syne". Since 1998 it is considered a completely lost diamond in the band's discography. Time to finally dig it up again, remastered by Arkadius himself, with new artwork (very similar to the original), bonus tracks and for the first time available on vinyl. Suidakra, that's over 25 years of band history, tours all over the world, placements at the biggest festivals AND still good friends who enjoy making music together.

The collaboration with Aljoscha Sieg (Eskimo Callboy, Vitja, Gestört aber GeiL), which is certainly untypical for die-hard fans, results in a breathtaking, lively sound, which from the very first note makes any scepticism about whether Suidakra still sound like Suidakra in 2021 evaporate. With the proven concept story from the "Realms Of Odoric" cosmos, lyrically and visually realised by Kris Verwimp, of course, "Suidakra 2.0" presents itself in a form that even old fans probably wouldn't have dreamed of. With "Wolfbite", Suidakra succeed in travelling from the past into the future and surely present one of THE albums of the year 2021. "As a fanboy since the debut, I am of course proud to be able to release the band's most mature work. Check out all the old albums and you will hear 100% Suidakra. But what is Wolfbite then? One thousand percent Suidakra? Album of the year - basta! Nothing beats that." - Markus Roesner / CEO, MDD Records TRACKLIST 01. A Life In Chains 02. The Inner Wolf 03. Darcanian Slave 04.

The Everdawn - Poems - Burning The Past CD
Melodic Death Metal Masterpiece! When it comes to the origins of melodic death metal, names like At The Gates or Dark Tranquillity are probably the benchmark. In 2021, the iconic label "Invasion Records", releasing melodic death metal gems on a conveyor belt, seems to have been forgotten. Bands like Scheitan, Gates Of Ishtar or THE EVERDAWN were the order of the day, even if the quality levels were quite different. The Everdawn, founded in 1993, celebrated the so-called "Gothenburg Death Metal" in its purest form. Their only album, "Poems - Burning The Past", with its playing time of just 35 minutes (plus bonus tracks), has to be described as the "Raining Blood" of this genre. Every riff ignites, every drum beat hits the mark, the songs are crisp and spontaneous, garnished with completely hysterical vocals that cement themselves in the auditory canals as if they had been pounded directly live. After its re-release on Century Media a decade ago, the album was again quickly out of print and crying out to be made available again. Here we go, ladies and gentlemen: The Gothenburg death metal flagship is available again. Be sure to get it now! "The Everdawn have created THE ultimate Gothenburg death metal album with "Poems - Burning The Past" and it belongs to this genre like "Raining Blood" belongs to thrash metal. Must have!" (Markus Rösner / CEO MDD Records) TRACKLIST 01. Territory Loss 02. When The Sunset Forever Shade 03. Needlework 04. Where Pain Never Dies 05. Autumn, Sombre Autumn 06. Burn 07. Poems 08.

VERMOCRACY - Age Of Dysphoria CD
Dark melodic death metal ! Vermocracy from Vienna, founded in 2017, already caused quite a stir in the underground with their self-titled debut, released in 2020. The band has undoubtedly dedicated itself to dark melodic death metal, as a nod to the genre greats of the 90s. Stylistically and in terms of content, the band draws a dystopian picture of the failure and decay of modern society with powerful riffs, earthy grooves and bestial vocals. With "Age Of Dysphoria", the band consistently continues the path they have taken since their foundation and delivers an album that sets new standards in the band's history, both technically and compositionally. Aggressiveness paired with the necessary groove, playful melodies combined with powerful harshness and all that, despite a clear homage to the melodic death metal of the nineties, with a contemporary freshness and great joy of playing characterises the album, which lyrically deals with the desolation and hopelessness of today. Age Of Dysphoria" was recorded, produced and mastered in Norbert Leitner's studio in Vienna, which gives the band a more than powerful sound, which is further enhanced by the artwork by Armin Stocker, who also gives the whole thing a fitting visual framework. Vermocracy will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come! TRACKLIST 01. Intro 02. Necrocracy 03. World Of Wounds 04. The Void's Embrace 05. Opposed Evolution 06. Grace Of Hypnos 07. Perpetual Flood 08. The Pyre 09. In Darkness Let Me Dwell
